TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME(New Line, 1992, no price set, rated R, Jan. 6 release date.)If you've seen "Blue Velvet" or "Eraserhead," it will come as no surprise to you that director David Lynch is capable of creating some most disturbing cinematic sequences. But the fact that he has done so in a theatrical prequel to the ground-breaking television series that was unable to sustain its craze-like popularity is not only a surprise but a great disappointment. Especially since the 134-minute film is also nearly devoid of the trademark humor that one suspects was what most captivated TV audiences.

Actor Kyle MacLachlan said it's simple.After having been asked a dozen different ways why he thinks viewers are so fascinated with FBI Agent Dale Cooper, the character he plays on "Twin Peaks," Mr. MacLachlan said, "He's this guy in this black suit with his hair slicked back, and it's fun to see what he's going to become obsessed with next -- coffee, cherry pie, Douglas firs. . . . Mainly, though, he's the hero on this quest." The Hero Quest.Actress Sheryl Lee said it was simple for her, too, once she understood what Director David Lynch was saying.

It's not as damn fine as a good cuppa joe or some cherry pie from the Double R diner, but ''The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer,'' by Jennifer Lynch (Pocket Books, $8.95) is still a valuable companion for the true "Twin Peaks" fanatic.Of all the characters in the supersonic prime-time soap opera, we know the least about the murdered Laura Palmer. So Lynch, the daughter of series creator David Lynch, fills in the gaps with a diary that stretches from her 12th birthday until a few days before her death.

What cliffhanger? What suspense? Thanks to "Twin Peaks producers' merchandising and publicity avarice, many of the mysteries left open at the end of last season's abbreviated run have already been resolved. All you have to do is listen to "Diane: The Twin Peaks Tapes of Agent Cooper" and read Jennifer Lynch's "The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer" (exceptionally lurid and smutty, in case you were wondering).They reveal, for example, that:Agent Cooper survives the shooting at the door of his room at the Great Northern Hotel.
